Teens Hurt in Crash, 15-year-old in Critical Condition
A teen girl remains in critical condition at the Arnold Palmer hospital, while another suffered serious injuries after the two were struck last Saturday night on State Road 46, in Seminole County.
Troopers said, 15-year-old Xiomara Munoz, of Winter Springs and 14-year-old Thalia Cruz walked into the direct path of a Ford vehicle. Its driver, Edward Coffie II, 26, of Sorrento, was heading westbound on State Road 46, around 9:30 p.m.
Troopers also said, the girls were standing on the south side of State Road 46 waiting to cross the road, when the light turned red for eastbound traffic, but remained green for the westbound lanes.
The front of the Ford struck Munoz and Cruz, who were at fault, FHP said.
Munoz was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital and remains in critical condition.
Cruz, who sustained serious injuries, was taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital.
Coffie was ticketed for an expired tag and unknowingly driving on a suspended license.
